What more is there to add after what Adam has just said so eloquently?
This place gave me a real sense of belonging, a knowledge that I was no longer alone. That there are others who have experienced the things I have experienced, and that together we can make it to a better place.
For me this place has given me the courage to reach out, to make friends (something I never really felt that I could do before). Sure, I had friends, but it was ALWAYS the instigation of the other party in the friendship. Now I find myself reaching out and initiating the act of friendship, both on this website, and in real life.
Thanks everyone, together we are making a difference, one person at a time.
Lots of love,
